    Chess Is Perfect.

    To me, playing chess is the ultimate experience. It is 64 perfect squares, and 32 pieces, that can never change, they can never be altered, the knight will always move in an "L" shape, the bishop will always move diagonally, etc. Whenever I do anything, whether it's watch a movie...

    I love playing chess,

    however, I am not very good at it. I have a computer chess program and I can't beat the level one setting. I have tried to learn about chess from reading books and find this unhelpful. I am usually good at learning from books. Not when it comes to chess however. Any simple tips...

    It's been years since I've played,

    but I enjoyed the game. I learned it when I was a kid, in some school program (GATE) that I don't remember much except that we played chess. One kid was really good at it. We all thought he'd win some tournament we participated in, but he came in 16th. Anyway, I would play it...

    A friend's 7 year old daughter taught me how to

    play chess! And then I taught my own teenager how to play. I rarely won against my pint-size teacher, and now my son takes me to the cleaners as well. Kids are brutal sometimes, haha! I start every game with the statement "Ok, no more chances for you!" But we both know I'm...

    A Chequered Past

    I've always had a strange fascination with Chess. For as long as I can remember, the board has held a strangely enigmatic appeal to me. I remember feeling so envious of the people who had a seemingly natural talent for the game, because despite my intrigue I was totally lacking...

    Ah, When It Started

    I remember learning chess from reading it in a book, and making my own set out of K'nex and a pizza box I checkered in with a pencil. Eventually I got a glass set and I love it. Still one of my favorite games!
